It was a weekend of ups and downs for the Yorkton Harvest as they took on the Battlefords Stars in a Saturday/Sunday doubleheader in early season action.
The Harvest, who were winless heading into their two game set with the Stars, looked the part on Saturday afternoon in a 4-0 loss. Battlefords opened the scoring two minutes into the game before adding another goal in the second period and a two goal third to give them the convincing victory.
Sunday was a different story as the Harvest scored four unanswered goals in the first and second periods to open a 4-0 lead of their own before winning 5-1 in their first win of the season. Lynndon Pastachak had a two goal and one assist effort while Jaden Kreklewich and Eric Meyer had three point nights of their own in a victory that hopefully will spark an early season turnaround for the struggling Harvest. Spencer Bombior had twenty five saves in the victory, allowing just one goal in a solid goaltending performance.
The Harvest now look for another Saturday/Sunday set at the FAA as they host the fourth place Saskatoon Blazers who have one win and two overtime points on the season. Saturday’s puck drop is at 7:30 p.m. while Sunday features matinee action with a 2:00 p.m. start.
